A few more quotes for the month on the positive sides of failure. I got most of these from the website http://www.businessofwinning.com/resources_quotes.php?id=9. They include a couple more from Teddy Roosevelt who must have really knew how to turn adversity to advantage as well as Lincoln whose failure-ridden life I highlight in my very first blog entry (19-Nov-05).
"Only those who dare to fail greatly can ever achieve greatly." – Robert F. Kennedy
"Strangely enough, mistakes often help avoid failures." – Barry Gibbons
"He who makes no mistakes makes no progress." – Theodore Roosevelt
"The person, who is incapable of making a mistake, is incapable of anything." – Abraham Lincoln
"The only man who ever makes a mistake is the man who never does anything." – Theodore Roosevelt
